Thin Line

Thin Line

A Poem by Belle

One has a comely face

The other is an evil

They say

 

But why I feel

They are the same

 

Extreme

Distressing

Makes me

A fool

 

Now, I don’t know

The difference

It sounds to me you are talking about love and war . Both can be extreme in a sense at some point or another and both can be distressing and heart-wrenching. Both can make us look like fools at the end of our loss in the battle of wills of sort. That is what I get but knowing you Miss Belle you like to keep meanings to yourself which I can understand . I hope at least I'm close to your intended meaning...
A nice philosophical write ...
Keep up the good work...:)

When i read this piece, first thing came into mind: an extreme case of bipolar disorder, in which a person would assume one personality at one time and the other personality would come out when there's an event that could trigger it. As i read the other interpretations below, i could only laugh at my own interpretation. i hope you don't mind receiving "out of this world" kind of interpretations. Your writes are short yet it always leave the readers something to ponder on.

this reminds me of a quote "no man, for any considerable period can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which is the true." nathaniel hawthorne. i am not certain yet your intent because there can be so many ways to go with this. but i have known people who have found themselves living a lie for so long that they lose sight of what is real. they actually begin believing in the lies they have created. this is a piece that inspire you to think and wonder. it's straightforward simplicity belies the deepness and complexity behind it. well done belle

Well said and pictured. It's like a tight rope walk.

that which seperates the yin from yang is less than our thought and more than our imagination

When two oppisite sites of self become one, it makes the mind or calm, or just jumping and chaotic... this is another good thought of yours dear Belle. When you in the ending don't know the difference, it speaks of being one in you.... just automaticly balanced...

I do love your short writes... they are very good! just keep being mysterious, that makes you beautiful, dear.

Simple, and so much said. Yin and Yang are one in the same. A thin line indeed.

I feel it is a kind of confusion.
Thought provoking work.

No. You show intuition through your words. BE PROUD. Write on.
